11 . JSWW!P 




Dedic ation 







To Mr. Eugene Williams, in acknowledgement 

of his sincere interest and gratuitious 

labors in behalf of his 

students, we, the Class of 1954, 

respectfully dedicate this volume of the Alethea. 




n Memoriam 




In respectful memory of James A. Tan'sey, 
who for 50 years was on the 
Board of Trustees and Chairmen Emeritus. 
His faithful and self- 
sacrificing work in the school's behalf 
and the absolute 
sincerity of his life among us, 
both as associate and friend will 
make his memory precious down through the years. 



Foreword 






To The Class of 1954, 

While we passed through the 

undergraduate years at Bradford 

Durfee Technical Institute, 

we were linked together by mutual experience. 

May the pages of this Annual 



tend to strengthen our 
bonds of loyalty to each other 
and the Alma Mater. In order 
that these bonds may not be broken 
and that our many memories may 
not be lost, even though the 
linking experience begone, 
we present this issue of the Alethea. 
It will serve as a means of keep- 
ing alive our pleasant memories and 
in the future it will offer us 
hours of retrospective joy. 



■» 













I wish to convey congratulations 

and heartiest best wishes, on behalf 

of myself and the people 

of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, to 

members of the graduating class of the 

Bradford Durfee Technical 

Institute. It is a particular pleasure 

to do so through the pages of the 

1954 Alethea, your fine yearbook, 

on the occasion of the 50th 

Anniversary of the founding of your Institution. 

You seniors have "won" your graduation day 

through hard work and 

persistence. I believe that America 

still offers untold bright futures 

for young people who are willing to accept its challenges 

and understand the deep significance, 

both social and spiritual, of our 

way of life. 

Continue to be conscientious. 

Carry the hard work of your educational 

journey into the sober adult days 

that now lie ahead. Do 

accept the wonderful privileges 

of an American birthright, but 

don't overlook or shirk the important 

responsibilities that rest upon all 

of us, as American citizens. 

I have every confidence that you will succeed. 



CHRISTIAN A. HERTER 







The first class entered the Institute on March 7, 1904. 

Thus your class has 

the honor of being the 50th Anniversary Class. 

During the four years 

with us, you have seen many changes. 

A new science building has been completed 

and existing buildings have been largely renovated 

and modernized. You have 

seen the Institute take its place 

among the technological colleges of the 

nation. You have seen the number of entering 

freshman almost double. 

I congratulate you on having had a part 

in the expanding program of the Institute. 

I am very certain that the next ten years 

will bring equally important changes 

here at Durfee Tech. We, who are left, 

pledge our best efforts to make of this 

school an institution as the years go by that you can well 

feel proud to call your Alma Mater. 

Someone has said, "Friendship is the greatest asset in the World. 

Wealth, Success and all the Honors that one can obtain do not 

compare with the happiness and the pride 

of having one good loyal friend." 

I am very happy to count you among the circle of friends. I wish 

for you all success and happiness during the years ahead. 

LESLIE B. COOMBS 





We humbly pay tribute to Professor John W. Norman, 

an outstanding 

teacher and friend of the student body. 

Seldom is a 

college faculty staff privileged 

to count among its number a 

man such as Professor Norman. 

Although this is his final year 

of teaching here 

at Durfee Tech the keen effect 

of his understanding and 

appreciation of student problems 

will always live in our memories.

Since 1831, Whitin has been a major supplier of machinery for 
the textile industry, building a relationship based on confidence. 
. . . confidence on Whitin's part, in the strength and growth of the

the textile industry and advance its technology. 

In their great and expanding role as producers of one of mankind's 
basic needs, every mill in the textile industry can still look to Whitin, 
as they have for 120 years, for modern, efficient, profit-making machinery.

What a wonderful world of color 
was locked in that magic tube! 



Shimmering jewels, a brilliant mosaic — what pictures could be imagined in the 
tiny wonderland of a kaleidoscope! But careful! Don't 
jolt it! . . . Or you'll find that your wonderland has gone. 

Every color that danced in that miracle tube has been captured 

by dye scientists for everything that people wear or people use. 

But these need not be kaleidoscopic colors that change — or unstable colors 

that fade; they can be colors that last for the entire lifetime of the material. 

That's the kind of color fastness that can be 
yours when you turn to Du Pont for dyes. 
Our technical service experts will help 
you find the right dye for the end use — 
whatever it may be. E. I. du Pont de Nemours

It's a better than even chance... 



. . . that you who have special preparatory training 
will become the textile executives of tomorrow . . . 
and because of this, Stowe-Woodward has a genuine 
interest in you who are graduating. 

Long before you reach the position that goes with 
that big mahogany desk and its inviting swivel 
chair, you will have learned a good deal about 
Stowe-Woodward Rubber Covered Rolls and their 
importance in the textile industry. 

When you've arrived, you will also know that Stowe- 
Woodward is a pretty dependable source of help 
on any textile problem involving the use of rubber 
covered rolls. By then, we'll know you, too. 

Right now, we'd like to extend congratulations for 
a good start and our best wishes for your success.

I Progress . . . Product of Experience 

^ You found it true during your years of training at Bradford Durfee 

Technical Institute. You'll find it even more evident as you progress 
in your career in the textile field. 

Progress . . . achievement . . . grow in proportion to your experience, 
your continuous opportunity to apply your knowledge and talents to 
everyday doings! 

The axiom applies equally to companies as to individuals. Such famous 
dyestuff products as the Solophenyls, Cuprophenyls, Erio Chromes, the 
revolutionary, new Irgalans and, of course Mitin durable mothproofing 
were developed as the result of nearly a century of Geigy research 
2 in the textile field. 

£ As your own career progresses, you will find it helpful to rely on names 

£ like Geigy . . . names which represent progress through experience!
